Ambassador Lynch congratulates Emmanuela Desir

US Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch, congratulated Emmanuela Desir, of Georgetown, as the first female from Guyana to attend the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. According to the local embassy, Desir attended a pre-departure ceremony at the U.S. Embassy, which included representatives from the Military Liaison Office. She received a full four-year scholarship at the academy, sponsored by the U.S. Government. Only 15 international students per year are admitted to the academy from around the world. “This scholarship builds on the US commitment to women, peace and security, as we recognise the unique and necessary skills that women bring to the security forces. The United States knows that when we invest in a woman, she changes not only her own life, but also that of her family and community,” the local embassy noted. Ambassador Lynch praised Desir’s strong desire to serve her country in the area of science and noted her plans to return to Guyana to work in the field of green energy.
